Real Substrate Proof

Ultimate Proofing Solution for Packaging

Real Substrate Proof enables proofs to be printed directly on the target production substrate, resulting in a proof that is indistinguishable from the final production run. Exclusive newly developed inks include CMYK/OGB/White and deliver exceptional quality and color gamut. Print on any packaging substrates with 100% Gamut and 100% Confidence.

Proof on final substrates

Developed in partnership with Mutoh, Real Substrate Proof enables production of proofs, prototypes, mock-ups and samples on the final target production substrate.

Looks and feels exactly like the final product

The look and feel and all other physical properties of the substrate are retained, making it possible to create a packaging proof or prototype which cannot be distinguished from the final product. Unlike traditional systems, our proofing system delivers samples and mock-ups that have the exact same look and feel as your finished product.

Covers Pantone Library

The brand new ink set, specifically designed for use with FLEX PACK software, includes CMYK and orange, green and blue and covers nearly 100% of the Pantone Library. It delivers exceptional color quality and gamut.
Making the proofing process faster and more accurate is important in a highly competitive marketplace where quality and time to market are critical to the success of prepress houses and packaging converters, as well as their brand owner customers.

The details

Real Substrate Proof, available exclusively from CGS ORIS, is a truly revolutionary approach to creating proofs, samples and mock-ups for packaging using the final target substrate, an approach previously not possible. Traditional proofing involves the use of expensive, specialized substrates that lack the true final appearance of the package. Real Substrate Proof, part of the Flex Pack Solution developed jointly with Mutoh, includes:

  • Mutoh VJ-628MP or VJ-1628MH printer
  • A compact footprint that fits in even the most space-constrained operations
  • Best-in-class print quality
  • Exclusive water-based resin inks in CMYK plus orange, green, blue and white with good adhesion on almost any surface
  • A huge color gamut covering 97% of Pantone colors
  • Odorless
  • High flexibility

Our multi-resin inks feature excellent adhesion and unique stretching and shrinking properties, enabling printing directly to shrink sleeves and other thin films as well as corrugated boards, metal, uncoated label stock, folding carton and more.

Printing directly to shrink sleeves offers a unique solution whereby brand owners can shrink the film onto the target packaging to validate accurate distortion of the artwork in advance of production. This is not possible with traditional proofing and prototyping solutions.
